The layout of the villa is as follows:
Ground floor: The porched entrance and double front door invites you into the grand hall. The central hall, with a striking stainless steel curved staircase with hardwood steps, accesses the guest restroom, the large integrated garage with electrically powered doors, the large coat area and, via French doors, the extremely spacious living room. The hall also leads to the magnificent kitchen/lounge. The ground floor features natural stone flooring with underfloor heating and solid wood floors. Large windows and several French doors (made of Merbau wood) bathe the rooms in natural light. The living room connects to a spacious study/ den. French doors from the living room open to a spacious terrace (full foundation) which presents a stunning view of your private country estate.
First floor: The stairs lead to the generous landing. There are two large bedrooms at the front, each with a door to the spacious balcony. The centrally positioned utility room accommodates the central heating unit (Nefit 2016) and the fittings for the laundry machine and dryer. A corridor leads from the landing to a third, good-sized bedroom. Across the hall from this bedroom is the "small" bathroom with a shower, wall-mounted toilet and vanity. The fabulous master bedroom is at the rear and can be accessed via a corridor with large wardrobes to both sides. This superb bedroom features a glass facade with French doors to the balcony, which offers a stunning view of the garden, and accesses the private master bathroom with a bathtub, shower, vanity and the third toilet. Both bathrooms have underfloor heating, and all room are of generous proportions.
Second floor: A loft ladder leads to a spacious storage attic.
Garden: The front garden is beautifully landscaped with a crescent-shaped crushed gravel driveway. The entire driveway is on a foam concrete slab, reducing subsidence to almost zero. Mature trees in the front garden lend this home a sense of luxury and elegance. The headland behind the house is amazing. Renowned garden architect Luc Engelhard from Kockengen was responsible for the landscaping design, which was done in such a manner as to minimize maintenance. The architect has deliberately chosen to create a natural garden, at times attracting as many as 30 different species of birds to the garden. The extremely large pond is a strong feature in this former plot of grasslands. A bridge over the pond leads to the terrace by the swimming pool, which is enclosed by a robust rock wall. A path leads along beautiful trees to the boathouse (planning permission granted) with a boat lift. The lawns feature different varieties of trees, shrubs and plants. The haystack terrace, under the copper roof, is a delightfully cool place to relax on hot summer days. There is always a spot in the shade or sun to be found in this magical garden!
